The tuners from Japo Motorsport GmbH released their latest tuning project on the Nissan Skyline R34 GTR. For the styling upgrades the Nissan Skyline received a new aero kit consisting of a new front apron, front mudguards, a larger rear wheel housing, and an ARC rear diffuser. Performance upgrades were next, but I’ll save that for later while I move to the interior. Inside the Skyline R34 GTR, Japo refined the leather with Alcantara upholstery, added a new Sparco steering wheel, and new gauges all around. Japo Motorsport announced that they will only build 20 units of the unique Nissan GTR, with each starting from 89,900 Euros, and taking 3 to 4 months to complete the build.
Now for the performance under the hood. The Japo Nissan Skyline R34 GTR still carries the factory 2.5-liter twin turbo powerplant, but received an HKS aftermarket treatment to boost the numbers. Two new GT RS turbos were installed along with an HKS upgraded intercooler, downpipe, injectors, ignition plugs, cylinder head gasket, and a 1.5 bar boost pressure topping it all off. Other miscellaneous modifications include an Fcon Pro standalone engine management system, an ARC 4-inch titanium exhaust, HKS clutch, and addtional ARC coolers for rear differential and switch box.
Can I get a drum roll please? The final performance figures for the Japo Nissan Skyline R34 GTR show the car produces 523 PS and 597 Nm of torque. This is more than impressive for a street or track car. Final improvements to handle the new power output include larger brakes and an ARC strut mounted between the front pillars.
